Wow - great work to create, from scratch, a fully functioning Jeopardy game! A lot of work went into creating this and I really appreciated being able to use the board and answer questions just like in the real game!
I would like to know a bit more about why the topics are important and how playing this game can help people learn and become more aware.
In creating this, you are getting into really tough compute problems like text matching and user interaction and I hope you keep going and create more great projects.

This is a very ambitious project. I love that you combined the classic game of Jeopardy with questions that feel very of-the-moment. I'd love to know more about how you settled on the topics you chose, and also on the process you undertook to code this game. I think players could learn a lot about themselves, and about others if they play in a group. I'd love to know more about your goals for the game and how you envision it being used for change. I see a lot of potential here. Great job!

Good effort on designing and coding a complete Jeopardy round! I really liked that you have kept it minimal, used a gameshow format that is familiar to many, and that the questions were particularly relatable during this time. That said, it would have been helpful to include some instructions on where to input the answers, and an introduction for players not familiar with the Jeopardy format.
